Excerpt from the CEO Message
“This year saw the staff, volunteers and people who use our services demonstrate what a thriving, hard-working and optimistic community we have in WA. We have again lived with the double impact of cost of living/delivering services far exceeding the funding we receive to deliver them, and the impact that WA labour shortages have seen on Rise.” Justine Colyer, CEO.
Excerpt from the Board Chair Message
"Individuals continue to show resilience, step up, be adaptive and support one another and our clients. In saying that, we will not always get everything 100% right, but I am confident that through our systems and a mindset of continuous improvement, and innovation, we will continue our endeavour in helping people live a great life." John Sobolewski, Board Chair.
